If you are willing to take a swarm, please send me your information, and mark the subject “Take a SWARM.”

What is a Swarm ?

When honey bees leave the hive to swarm, they are generally looking for a new home. Read more about bees, swarms and why they exist in our section about bees.

Swarm List – You must be a paid COBA member to be added to the swarm list.

This swarm list is presented to the Central Ohio Area as a guide to help save the honey bees and find a new home for them. Members of COBA have agreed to collect swarms by listing their names. In some cases, it may be necessary to try several of these members because time is of the essence. Find a member in your area and contact them with information about the swarm such as how long has it been there, how high up is it, the location of the swarm and whom to contact. Check for pricing and services. We are not responsible for any errors, omissions, or problems that may arise. This listing is a service to the community.
